tigerbolt ... hey man, anyone on here would do the same, and i'm just glad i could help out, especially with the '72 stuff; sent you an e-mail earlier; and e-mail me with anything else you're looking for, 'cause if you're happy with just the lossless files, well hell, that's easy enough to do and never a prob.

I see that you are getting the 10/30 show as well over at LL. I don't know about you, but can't wait to listen myself.

Nazdravi ... Arbuthnot.

Arbuthnot - Just curious why youn started using the Nazdravi sign off - not that you have to feel compelled to answer- just that my father is from Prague, Czechoslovakia and Czechoslovakia is the only other place I've heard that word used.
Cheers, Tom

Tom ... thanks for asking, but the fact is i lived in Brno (2nd largest city after Prague) for three years '00-'03, and still haven't gotten my love of that country out of my head. It's a damn fine place, with some damn fine people (as you of course must know). But trust me, my knowledge of Czech is fairly basic ... problem is the girl i lived with only wanted to speak English, and thinking on it, well i probably helped her a great deal by complying. Plan on visiting again next year. I take it you've been? Can't do the accent marks of course, but i guess that would make you a 'Tomas'.

Interesting!...Yeah I've been there and I love the country. It's interesting but my dad was born in a bunker in Brno during World War 2 and my grandfather fought the Germans in the surrounding forests as part of the Czech resistance. I have family in close villages there. There's a book called "Hitler's Kiss" that recently came out and it features my grandfather and his fellow partisans and their wartime experiences in and around Brno.

Wow! ... would love to read that book. Did a google, and had a few sites come up, but no book with that name. However, i'll check more thoroughly tomorrow. Actually, sounds fascinating. I loved the forests around Brno. Well, to be honest, there were times that i really missed the sort of foliage that we have here in New England, but as well i loved the Czech forests, with their really, really tall and straight pines. You'd enter the forest and the trees would be clear of branches for like twenty-thirty feet up, and then the branches would spread out and you'd have this really great canopy and the ground all spread with the accumulated pine needles and ferns and wild blue berries. So peaceful, so quiet. Aw hell, you're making me nostalgic!

You just made me nostalgic with your beautiful and accurate description. The book is actually The Hitlers Kiss. I forgot the "the". Search for it like that and you should find it - by Radomir Luza I can't wait to go back. That's cool that you have plans.

Hey you two--had to say 'thanks' as I love reading history on central Europe (geographic, military, etc) and will defn track down that book. In that spirit, I would recommend to you two a book by Paul Magocsi (Historical Atlas of Central Europe). Great maps and overview of political, cultural, religious developments of the region...okay, back to the music.

Hey Cush--sorry to bug you, but I know (think) you work at a Borders, and are you saying that the book they spoke of is unavailable (ie must be ordered)? I just wrote down the title to look for next time I am in a book store, and from your response, I wondered if I am going to have to be more proactive...again, sorry if this is out of line to ask on this forum...no sweat if you just ignore it.

Not at all, sounds like an interesting read, especially with a little added cyber, yet personal connection. It's not in stock at my store, but may be at others. Otherwise it looks very available and orderable.
